The City of Providence, R.I., is considering a program that will allow police officers who live in the city to take vehicles home. While the police chief says the program would come with benefits, he is concerned that funding the program would come from fleet replacement funds, WPRI reported.

An internal auditor estimated the program would cost between $198,000 and $2.5 million, depending on the number of officers allowed to take their vehicles home.
